As part of the AQA GCE French A2 Level course, students are required to study two cultural topics and, at the Moorlands VI Form College, we chose to study a target language speaking region or community: Nord-pas-de-Calais, one of the 26 regions of France, which consists of the departments of Nord and Pas-de-Calais, in the north and shares a border with Belgium.
As part of the cultural topic, we were required to study, and then produce a PowerPoint Presentation and an extended essay on:
➤ Its geography and how its geography has influenced, influences and will influence the region
➤ Its history and how its history has influenced, influences and will influence the region
➤ Its industries and how these have changed in the last 20 years. What about the future?
➤ Its population and how it has changed in the last 20 years. What about the future?
➤ Its economy and how important this is/was
➤ A personal perspective: Would you like to live/work in this region?
